Black-Red 2009 : Russian anarchist propaganda video. Made by new video group ‘Autonomous Resistance’, and featuring footage from MayDay 2008 to MayDay 2009. It’s enough to make a dirty scabby fashion punk piss in their tartan pants!
Extra Added Bonus!
It’s time to face the facts take a stand
To act not only to defend
A great leap forward and no step back
It’s up to us — Attack!
Speak out where prejudice lies
Intervene when integrity dies
No place left for no-go areas
For nationalism and racist thoughts
Fight the fascist scum
Unity means power
The streets are ours!
A totalitarian society
If you prefer that shit you’re my enemy
Our freedom exists when their influence ends
White power – not a chance!
Here is a heart, a mind, a fist
Which know the meaning to resist
In the name of sanity, don’t forget
The front line against the fascist threat
White power – not a chance!
For Thor Steinar and his friends
It’s in our hands
